This is our alternative Christmas performance. We read the Twinkl Christmas Story, then created a voice over. We hope you enjoy this. Hopefully we will be performing live again next year!

Diwali. We used chalk to make a rangoli pattern on the playground. We practised using shape and colour names in Welsh. We played an accompaniment  to a Diwali song using our musical instruments,  then we Banghra danced around our pattern. What a great afternoon!

We listened to the story of Rama and Sita. We liked the idea of a monkey army. Here is Miss Jesson’s super monkey army!

Our socially distanced Remembrance Service 11 am on November 11th.

Here is the work for this week. Something went wrong with the IT yesterday so it didn’t send. You will be pleased to know that I have had a few quiet minutes with a hammer and showed the computer what happens when it only does half a job. The computer now understands how angry I am and I can pretty much guarantee it will not be behaving badly again!


Please click on the picture below to find lots of projects for Early Years. You can work as a whole family or by yourself.

Here are a few challenges for you to try as a family. Taken from our ‘Have a Go’ pack.

Here is a simplified plan of what we would have been doing over the next few weeks in class. Please feel free to try any of the activities and send your photos (not videos) to [email protected] and I will upload them to the HOME LEARNING page. Have fun x

Each class has a ‘WAGOLL wall’ this shows the children ‘What A Good One Look Like’. When writing postcards or creating a newspaper front page it is always easier if children know what is expected and …what a good one looks like. In Foundation Phase we need a little extra help, so our friend WAGOLL shows us what to do. This is WAGOLL.
